Nokia N81 8GB Battery
Nokia BT-6MT battery
The Nokia N81 8GB uses a 1050 mAh Nokia BT-6MT battery. According to Nokia this battery lasts for a standby time of seventeen days and a talk-time of four hours. When the phone is not used, the standby time is correct, but I think that everybody plays with his mobile once in a while. In my case a standby time of approximately ten days was what I experienced. With frequent photographing the cell phone lasts for about two hours.
